For Halloween, I basically used clothes I would wear multiple times. :3 Yeah, for one, closets don't expand and stretch in this world.

Great article! I wear a uniform to school and my fashion sense is dusted, but I learned to apreciate minimalism and discovered that the "uniform" become part of my style. Thank you for the blog recommendations, great inspiration :)

Thanks. Fantastic blog. This is definitely my style philosophy. I don't spend money on clothes monthly. I spend seasonally, when necessary. My wardrobe is mostly American Apparel, as it is both a local and socially responsible company. I have banned anything made in a sweat shop from my wardrobe. Also, quality over quantity is my motto.

I'm now addicted to Assembled Hazardly - I'm a huge sucker for blogs that have quality writing. I'm one to learn towards the "minimal style" blogs when I'm looking for a good read. All the "trademarks" you talked about are definitely what drive me to bookmark the blog. Great post Sam!

This is basically a written form of my fashion philosophy- I have tight money constraints and rarely buy new clothes, but I know how each new item will mesh with my closet. I've also gotten good at revamping old items with a little sewing know-how. Thank you for this!

Chambray

Is anyone else feeling a little visually strained from womenswear of late? Menswear in its simplicity and consistency is such a comfort. I love the ‘dry brush’ texture of chambray in those muted po...
